, minnesota, the upper mid western part of our country. take back states like indiana, virginia, north carolina that president obama won last time against john mccain. the second thing which is really for important is where president obama is on this poll which is at 42. there is a rule of thumb in polling that the incumbent gets what he gets in the polling, which means that if the election were being held today, which obviously it's not, we have a longtime to go, if the election were held today president obama would lose like a landslide. that has to be devastating for him. megyn: i have a lot i want to ask you about. let's go through it piece by piece. i want to get youree action to the date being moved up in florida. these other states are saying we have to go before florida. iowa, new hampshire, nevada, and south carolina now all in january before florida, it's going to be a busy month for you guys. you sound kind of happy about it. mitt romney's camp i don't know. they came out with a statement that said, we'll wait to see what happens with all these dates then it decides how it a

in indiana. that is my comment. the percentage of payroll compared to gdp. host: a tweete -- a democrat from california. you are on the air. caller: are you listening? host: we are listening. caller: listen, i believe the stimulus is wrong and the reason why i believe it is wrong is because if we put it this stimulus into the people of the united states, we will spend all the money buying stuff from china and indonesia and places like that and all of the money will leave. i agree with your first caller today who said that ross perot was right. we ought to ban these trade agreements and concentrate on putting factories in this country. you could put a factory out in the middle of the desert and you will have small businesses grow up around it. we could put a toy factory anywhere and you would have small business grow all around it and it will stimulate the economy. but just putting it into building stuff -- or, building up the road and the bridges, all that money is going to go -- i mean, you are going to put people to work for awhile but they will buy things off of china and all the money le

with the islamic communities in new york city. in my state of indiana, we have islamic groups, and i do not think we have done nearly as good a job as the york city has done, much smaller in scope. but this problem is very local. it means you have to have contact occasionally with the leaders of the islamic communities who are the people who can identify suspected radicals within their community. it is a problem the federal government clearly has to deal with it and be helpful on. but the real action, it seems to me, is at the state and local level to identify these people and try to head them off. you began your question with chapter 12 of the commission report, the whole question of what to do about islam and the foreign policy fischer's which are largely ignored in the reporting on the report. but that raises the question of how united states foreign policy must deal with the islamic world. it is a big question. >> how much is possible? it is like saying how do we prevent bank robberies. the insert is you do not prevent bank robberies. you solve bank robberies after the happened. the notion of
